  38. Hi Ivar, I`m in the picky mood :). Take a look at your first picture in this blogg. Try cropping the picture to get rid off the white rectangle in the lower left corner. It is now the whitest area in your picture, and thus draws attention. But its not realy part of your storry, so I think you would be better of without it.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Maybe it was short, but it sure looks sweet!

    ReplyDelete
  40. Very impressive! Beautiful shots.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Really great shots, Ivar! I really love the first one!

  70. What a stunning selection of photos! Thanks for sharing and happy SWF!

    ReplyDelete
  71. Å våkne til "morgenstemning" er en god idè og sikkert mer behagelig enn å våkne til Nickelback og samgen deres "Rokcstar"...
    Jeg hadde "The Snowman", men min mann ble så lei den:(
    For meg spiller det egentlig ikke noen rolle. Synes det er pyton å stå opp uansett! Men jeg var oppe før klokken 6 i dag likevel. Nå er det litt blogging + kaffe (i stedet for avisen - den ta jeg litt senere), så luftetur med Jølle, vekking av unger og jobb...Men så er det helg!!!

    ReplyDelete
  72. You have a fantastic photo as the lead to this week's SWF! I have been on mouantains and seen the clouds filling the valley, but have never seen a shot like this. The photos on your blog are also excellent!

    ReplyDelete
  73. Nice shots. I like the one with the sun. And I really like the one on the SWF blog. Wonderful shot! :-)

  74. Hei Ivar.
    Gratulerer med din plass på Sky Watch laget.
    Flotte ord der fra deg.
    Jeg har ikke postet Sky Watch bilder siden juni.
    Men, denne uken bidrar jeg med ett bilde.
    Jeg husker oppstarten.
    Da var Dot vert og vi var ca. 30 bloggere som deltok.
    Det var Gawo som tipset meg om temaet tilbake, den gang da.
    Skal si det har vokst!
    Er imponert!

    Ditt bidrag her er veldig fint.
    Jeg liker nr. 3 veldig godt.
    Som ett vakkert postkort fra Norge.
    Det minner også om alle ferjereiser over Sognefjorden som liten.

    Lykke til som vert og ha en
    fiiiin fredag! :)

  107. Your photos are beautiful and the clarity is amazing... I will have to board the ferry in a few weeks to get out to the hospital to do some tests and perhaps if the weather behaves I will get some shots in but with the cold approaching, I'm a little skeptical.
    Hopefully you will get your snow soon! =)
